The Kangana Ranaut-starrer action film Dhaakad had the dubious honour of collecting only Rs. 4,420 on the eighth day of its theatrical journey, and selling only 20 tickets across the country. These figures are as per Bollywood Hungama. That the film was a disaster was apparent from day one itself. Overall, Dhaakad has made around Rs 3 crore, continuing Kangana’s long streak of box office underperformance.

Dhaakad reportedly cost between Rs 80 crore and Rs 90 crore to make, and according to a separate Bollywood Hungama report, is struggling to find streaming distribution as the producers didn’t crack the deals prior to release.

Dhaakad is also directed by Razneesh Ghai and stars Arjun Rampal, Divya Dutta, and Saswata Chatterjee. Dhaakad received mixed reviews, but moviegoers seem to have given the film a complete pass.

The horror-comedy sequel Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2, which was released concurrently with Dhaakad, has turned a huge profit. At the time of writing, it is on the verge of crossing Rs 100 crore. The Anees Bazmee directorial, which is a sequel to the 2007 film, stars Kartik Aaryan, Tabu, and Kiara Advani.

The Indian Express film critic, Shalini Langer, gave Dhaakad 3.5 stars. She concluded the review by saying, "The simple, uncomplicated storyline is that Agni became an agent after a shocking incident from her childhood, when her parents were shot by a man of whom she has a faint memory." Now, she is leading the agency’s investigation of a trafficking ring running out of central India and reaching up to Budapest (that keeps popping up almost like a backyard to Bhopal) and a Sheikh with origins in the Middle East.
